Boyne Resorts premiers North America's 1st D-Line @ Big Sky, Mon
With the construction of the Ramcharger 8, the ski area is raising the bar in terms of passenger comfort, safety and quality! Leading the way in North America, Ramcharger 8 is one of the continent’s most technologically advanced installations. It replaces a detachable quad chairlift on Andesite Mountain.
The new D-Line features the full spectrum of cutting-edge D-Line ropeway technology. The new 8-seater chairlift incorporates ergonomically shaped individual heated seats and bubbles in Big Sky’s signature blue, locking & automatic opening restraining bars, Doppelmayr Direct Drive, a height-adjustable loading conveyor, the Doppelmayr Connect control system, and fully automated chair parking! A particularly eye-catching feature at the bottom station is the huge end wall HD video screen providing winter sports enthusiasts with the latest information on trails and weather conditions. All 65 chairs feature the new Ramcharger 8 logo and different printed designs on the chairbacks, creating visual interest and distinctive styling for the overall look of the installation.
This new lift enables Big Sky to offer its guests maximum ride comfort and top safety standards.
